Remodeling Your Stephenville Home’s Bathroom? Keep These Things in Mind

Back to Real Estate News

Stephenville real estateWith the recent recovery of the housing market, many homeowners are looking to drive up the value of their home even more before selling. A bathroom renovation can be a fantastic way not only to get more enjoyment out of an area in your home that sees a lot of foot traffic, but also to increase your Stephenville  home’s value and make it more appealing to potential home buyers. Renovations are great for your home, however, there are some key things to keep in mind when making them. Keep these tips in mind when planning for your bathroom remodel and consult a local real estate professional for clarifications or suggestions.

  • One of the most important aspects of your Stephenville home’s bathroom remodel is the budget. Without having a budget of how much money you can spend planned out, you could very easily end up spending more money than you can afford, according to online home design platform freshome.com. Calculate the cost of labor, if using professional help, after you have calculated your total budget. Calculating the labor and subtracting it from the total budget will give you an idea on how much you can spend on the actual materials and fixtures.
  • Another aspect of your bathroom renovations to plan for is the amount of time the renovations would take. Many homeowners underestimate the amount of time it takes for a contractor to redo a bathroom. If you’re doing the work yourself, you can budget time more tailored around your needs, but plan carefully. Don’t forget to include the amount of time it’s going to take for ordered supplies to come in when calculating the total renovation time. Supplies can take up to several weeks to come in, so don’t expect to place your order and be renovating the next day.
